California’s proposed water tax: Gavin Newsom’s trickle down economics

Less than a month into newly minted California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s term, the Golden State has been inundated with a series of rain storms. Most people peeked up at the droplets and thought of impending mudslides, road closures and traffic jams. Not Gavin Newsom. Nope. California’s new governor looked at the rainfall and saw millions of dollars in uncollected water taxes going right down the drain. In one of his first moves as chief executive, Newsom declared that he wants to tax the state’s drin...

Hawkish establishment goes after Tulsi Gabbard

This year it seems every Democrat with a minimum of name recognition is considering running for president. For the party, the surge of enthusiasm comes with a few risks. The biggest is a messy intra-party fight. And so far, the worst sign of the consequences of that conflict is the early effort to torpedo the nascent campaign of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. Gabbard isn’t like the Democrats’ typical candidates. But she’s not one of the restive moderates or the activist socialists, either. On clo...

Trip to the American Bookbinders Museum

Over the summer, I spent a week in California with my family (a real vacation – yay!). I was fortunate enough to visit The American Bookbinders Museum in San Francisco.  I visited the museum back in 2009 when Tim James ran it. It has since moved into a gorgeous space and now offers a wonderful experience of the history of bookbinding and an explanation of why it’s relevant today. It’s amazing what can happen in a few years! I was charmed by the posters – they seem to be reproductions of wh...

Producers are meeting California’s new, tougher rules for cannabis safety

Tougher requirements for marijuana purity that kicked in this year in California aren’t triggering the high failure rates that emptied shelves at cannabis shops last summer, when the state began phasing in mandated testing. The better results signal that the cannabis industry is stabilizing in its second year of regulated sales, despite a roller coaster first year that included one testing lab caught falsifying marijuana test results, industry officials and others said. There’s still concern abo...

Whicker: Saints WR Michael Thomas, from Taft High to NFL stardom, still playing catchup

–Michael Thomas caught more passes than anyone in the NFL this season. The Saints threw 163 footballs in his direction. He caught 137. He played at Taft High. UCLA is 15 miles away. USC is 25. The recruiters drove the 101, right past his exit, seeking someone bigger and faster. Keyshawn Johnson, perhaps the most flamboyant receiver in Trojans history, is Thomas’ uncle. “If Keyshawn can’t convince USC to take him, I don’t know who can,” said Matt Kerstetter, then the coach at Taft. Thomas fell th...

Governor Newsom’s troubling first act on medications
